Prerequisites:

Before starting this tutorial, you should have a basic understanding of HTML, and CSS. Additionally, you will need a code editor such as Visual Studio Code or Sublime Text to write and save your code.

Source Code

Step 1 (HTML Code):

To get started, we will first need to create a basic HTML file. In this file, we will include the main structure for our card components.


The document begins with a standard HTML5 doctype declaration, followed by the opening html tag with a lang attribute set to "en" to specify the language of the document.


Inside the head element, the document defines the title of the page and sets the character encoding to UTF-8 using the meta tag. Additionally, the meta tag with name="viewport" is used to set the width of the viewport to the device width. Finally, the document includes a link tag to reference the Tailwind CSS library from a CDN.


In the body of the document, there is a div element with a class of "min-h-screen bg-gray-900 text-gray-100" that creates a container for the card components. The container has a dark gray background color and light gray text color.


Inside the container, there are two identical card components, each consisting of a div element with a class of "py-6 px-6 max-w-md mx-auto bg-white rounded-xl shadow-md space-y-2" that creates a white box with rounded corners, drop shadow, and some padding.


Inside each card component, there is an image element that displays a picture of a Construction work, and a div element that contains some text describing the person in the picture. The text is formatted using various Tailwind CSS classes, such as "text-lg", "font-semibold", "text-gray-500", "flex", "items-center", etc. Some of the text is also linked to external resources using anchor elements with href attributes.


The first card component has a centered text alignment, while the second one has a left-aligned text alignment. The second card component also has an additional button element with some custom styling applied using Tailwind CSS classes.


After creating the files just paste the following below codes into your file. Make sure to save your HTML document with a .html extension, so that it can be properly viewed in a web browser.

Step 2 (CSS Code):
